Hope you don't mind me responding to this question but I asked my wife who is a nurse.
Prednisone is an immune system suppressant and can affect the hormones in a woman's system. This can alter a period in a number of ways...late, missed for a couple of months and/or minor bleeding in some cases.
Prednisone is a drug that should be used sparingly because of its many side effects. Generally with MS, every time it is used makes it less effective for the next application.
